I added one more picture for your viewing enjoyment.

BTW - this one appears to be unfired.

Yup, a little more rare than the average 03.

Too bad most of the Peterson devices got destroyed. It would be a nice addition to have one...

That's sweet!

No, my Mark 1 was made in the second run - 1930. Per my research, this is one of those 100K specifically produced rifles that never saw service. I guess the Army ord figured that the .30 cal pistol cartridge was not that effective in combat. Besides, they had that whole m1 Garand thing being tested...

From what I can tell, this was sitting around some warehouse and was proabably finally released in the then DCM program in the 50's. I purchased this from my Father who never fired it. Back then, people were picking these up for a couple of dollars.

It's a sweet rifle, but most of my 03 shooting I do with my 03A3.

Cheers

But then I favor this one over almost all others.

That is one nice rifle, mj1. It looks Swedish to me, although I not too good on non-military weapons. From a Swede perspective, I sure like the way those little carbines shoot and I think the 6.5x55 Swiss is one of my favoriate cartridges.

I thought so. I think the scope was throwing me off as I don't have many rifles with optics (read: sniper). I really love the Swedes as I have 2 carbines (engineering and calvary), 1 long rifle like yours, and 1 WWII Husky that is configured (shorter, more compact) very much like a K98 but still has that butter smooth M95 action - one of the best actions ever, in my opinion.

The Swedes really know how to make some fine rifles. Quality is first rate.
